I'm always amazed at the modelers who have no idea how radio signals get sent and received through the air. Mention Blue Tooth and everybody knows what it does. Mention 2.4Mhz radio control and you get the dear in the headlights stare. That's the problem with appliance operators. They have no idea what's under the hood.
Carry on David. I'll be installing the Deltang receivers in my TT scale engines. I have a couple of articles I plan on doing for one of the major magazines using your receivers in a TT scale engine. I hope it's OK to advertise for you in the magazine. I will ask for permission before doing so.

They are looking for a minimum of 100 non-US (Eur/Aus) board signups before they get certification for non-US sales. Last count they need 50 more.
That's good news, I signed up but don't remember committing to actually buying? I will buy when available even if it is just one board for evaluation purchases. The board is too large for 00 scale locos but would be OK for fixed formations where it could go in the leading coach.
The App 'controller' might prove popular as it simplifies the buying of a start up for evaluation. Deltang would cost about the same or less if you bought one of those tiny 2 channel transmitters. In contrast it seems Protocab are too expensive with a start up cost of over £200 for one locomotive. I would like to try them out but not at that price.
I just got my 1st BlueRail board, thought I'd give it a go in one of my O-scale engines.
I've sent an email with a question to them, but thought I'd ask here...the instructions say to isolate the DC motor and lights from the chassis. If I'm running off batteries (no power at all to the tracks, however the motor case is currently mounted/shorted to the chassis) and the BlueRail board isn't touching the metal anywhere, why would I need to isolate the motor (and lights)?
